Talk

With the writers Edmund White (USA) | Eileen Myles (USA) | Jericho Brown (USA) Presenter: Peter Rehberg (Germany) cultural and media scholar

“We are part of a mighty rebellion by all oppressed people” – this is how Edmund White felt about the events in Christopher Street, which he was part of and which played a major role in shaping his writing. What was the meaning of Stonewall for him and for the LGBT writers of subsequent generations? What remains of the spirit of that revolt?

 

English-German interpreting will be available for the event.

Project leaders: Matthias Kniep | Axel Schock


The panel discussion Stonewall was a riot! is presented by SIEGESSÄULE with the kind support of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen and Studio Я of the Maxim Gorki Theatre.
